3. Guidance

1), you are advised to select a narrow, specific abuse or cluster of abuses that is/are a clear breach of international human rights law and has/have been acted upon by the UN.

2), you are advised to select, as case-studies and examples, specific abuses that are clear breaches of international human rights law and have been acted upon by the UN.

In describing the abuse(s) and its/their context, be careful to avoid merely ‘cutting and pasting’ material from the reports. You should aim to be as brief as possible, without omitting essentials, providing an effective summary with appropriate referencing.

When evaluating the UN procedures, you should identify what those procedures are intended to achieve and what in fact they do achieve. You should then consider how they might be made more effective.

When evaluating complementary and alternative strategies and procedures, you should briefly review the alternatives and then concentrate on those you consider most likely to be effective.

(b) A word count total must be provided on each course work submitted. An inaccurate word count may be dealt with as cheating (an attempt to obtain an unfair advantage). See the Course Guide for further information on penalties that may be imposed.

YOU ARE REMINDED OF THE NEED TO COMPLY WITH THE WORD LIMIT AND THE UNIVERSITY’S ACADEMIC REGULATIONS (see the LLB Course Guide).

The consequences of Academic Misconduct are serious – you will fail the assessment and you may not be allowed to graduate or to enter the Legal Profession if you are found guilty. So remember and check – your coursework must be your own original work, all sources and authorities must be properly referenced and all quotations must be put in quotation marks and properly referenced. Paraphrasing is still regarded as plagiarism if you fail to acknowledge the source for the ideas being expressed.
